Ducati new greenfield manufacturing facility

Rayong, Thailand

  • Sustainability Goals and KPI Setting

  • LEED Certification Consultancy and Implementation

  • Building performance optimization




Ducati is developing a new greenfield manufacturing facility in Rayong, east of Thailand. The factory’s main operations include vehicle and engine manufacturing as well as warehousing. GBCE has been engaged alongside Archetype Thailand to take on Ducati’s sustainability ambitions within its new facility. In this light, we are providing sustainability consultancy to improve the operations and infrastructure as well as LEED certification consultancy and facilitation services.



GBCE has been awarded the Sustainability Consultancy for Ducati’s new industrial facility. As such, we are supporting their organization in defining their Rayong’s facility’s sustainability strategy and establishing industry relevant KPIs to improve their operational and infrastructure environmental profile. Ducati is aiming to achieve LEED certification, for which we are working in collaboration with the design team, Archetype, to ensure green features and strategies are well incorporated into the design and meet the performance required by the environmental ratings and set targets.

Focus: Water Conservation


Recognizing water as a scarce resource, the project implemented various strategies to reduce water consumption, including low-flow plumbing fixtures, stormwater management, and wastewater treatment, as well as native species planting.

The installation of low-flow plumbing fixtures in the building has resulted in saving more than 40% of water therefore reducing dependency on municipality water. To minimize outdoor water usage, the project prioritized shrubs and trees over turf areas, thereby reducing overall irrigation water requirements. Additionally, all planted species are native to the climate, reducing their water demand. Drip irrigation systems were installed to further reduce irrigation water needs.

All wastewater generated in the building is treated through a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) on-site. This not only reduces the load on the central STP but also allows for the reuse of treated water for landscaping and flushing, further reducing the demand for potable water.

Stormwater drains have been strategically placed throughout the project site to manage stormwater runoff, with outlets connected to a nearby natural canal, helping regulate water levels in the canal.
